Available For Adoption

Rusty - North Carolina

Rusty is a stout 1-2 year old "Teddy Type-B" male. He weighs about 16 pounds and is about 13 inches tall. Rusty was a stray and his time had run out at the shelter. Since being in his foster home Rusty has really warmed up, and has become very loving. He gets along great with dogs and he does well with Terrier-wise cats that don’t run away from him. Rusty is still unsure with children, as he is not around them on a regular basis; any children in the home would need to be gentle, dog-savvy, and closely monitored until a good relationship has been established. Rusty is working on his house-training and his only issue is occasional marking. He is wearing a "belly band", and has improved greatly since being neutered. Rusty walks like an absolute dream on a leash. He is not very interested in toys, but does enjoy a bone and playing with the other dogs. Rusty is crate trained and at night he likes to sleep on a pillow beside his foster-parent's bed. Overall, Rusty is a sweet, loyal dog with a lot of love to give. For more images:
